I endorse this - works great. I have a cable modem connected to my 
Mac and I can attach Windows PCs to my home LAN (I am using an 
ancient Windows 95 machine and more modernn ones with XP) and there 
is no apparent overhead in Internet access via IPNetRouter - in fact 
when I put a fast PC on the LAN it appeared to run a good deal faster 
than the gateway Mac! I guess this was because the rendering speed of 
a 1.2GHz machineor whatever is faster than my 400MHz G3.

For OSX, as I understand it, there are different solutions. Apple 
itself explains these in Help files and on the Knowledge Base, but 
I've had a lot of help from Joel Shoemaker's site - e.g.
